Lindsay & Kerry Clare

Kerry and Lindsay Clare have been in practice together for 35 years. Their work includes a diverse range of architectural projects, from public buildings and major urban and housing projects to individual houses. Architecturally, their work is consistently acknowledged for a rare combination of design excellence and high-level environmental performance. In 2010 the RAIA Gold Medal Jury noted that: ‘Kerry and Lindsay Clare have made an enormous contribution to the advancement of architecture and particularly sustainable architecture, with a strongly held belief that good design and sustainable design are intrinsically linked’. Their work has been included in over 150 national and international books, periodicals and publications as well as numerous exhibitions including Place Makers—Contemporary Queensland Architects at GoMA in 2008 and the ‘10 Shades of Green’ exhibition, New York, 2000. A monograph about the work of Clare Design 1980-2015, edited by Haig Beck and Jackie Cooper, will be released by ORO Editions in March/April 2015. Significant projects include the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art, University of the Sunshine Coast Chancellery, University of the Sunshine Coast Recreation Club, Docklands Library, Cotton Tree Social Housing, UNSW Student Housing, Thrupp and Summers House, White House, Clare House and the Hammond House.
